A bstractAnomaly matching constrains low-energy physics of strongly-coupled field theories, but it is not useful at finite temperature due to contamination from high-energy states. The known exception is an ’t Hooft anomaly involving one-form symmetries as in pure SU(N ) Yang-Mills theory at θ = π. Recent development about large-N volume independence, however, gives us a circumstantial evidence that ’t Hooft anomalies can also remain under circle compactifications in some theories without one… 

Universality between vector-like and chiral quiver gauge theories: anomalies and domain walls

We study low-energy dynamics of [SU( N )] K chiral quiver gauge theories in connection with N $$ \mathcal{N} $$ = 1 super Yang-Mills (SYM) theory, and quantum chromodynamics with bi-fundamental

Anomaly matching, (axial) Schwinger models, and high-T super Yang-Mills domain walls

A bstractWe study the discrete chiral- and center-symmetry ’t Hooft anomaly matching in the charge-q two-dimensional Schwinger model. We show that the algebra of the discrete symmetry operators

High-temperature domain walls of QCD with imaginary chemical potentials

A bstractWe study QCD with massless quarks on ℝ3 × S1 under symmetry-twisted boundary conditions with small compactification radius, i.e. at high temperatures. Under suitable boundary conditions, the

Modified instanton sum in QCD and higher-groups

We consider the SU( N ) Yang-Mills theory, whose topological sectors are restricted to the instanton number with integer multiples of p . We can formulate such a quantum field theory maintaining

Topological aspects of 4D Abelian lattice gauge theories with the θ parameter

We study a four-dimensional $U(1)$ gauge theory with the $\theta$ angle, which was originally proposed by Cardy and Rabinovici. It is known that the model has the rich phase diagram thanks to the

Abstract We carry out a systematic study of SU(6) Yang-Mills theory endowed with fermions in the adjoint and 3-index antisymmetric mixed-representation. The fermion bilinear in the 3-index

From 3D dualities to hadron physics

When one of the space-time dimension is compactified on $S^1$, the QCD exhibits the chiral phase transition at some critical radius. When we further turn on a background $\theta$ term which depends

Semiclassics with ’t Hooft flux background for QCD with 2-index quarks

Abstract We study quantum chromodynamics including the two-index symmetric or anti-symmetric quark (QCD(Sym/ASym)) on small ℝ2× T2 with a suitable magnetic flux. We first discuss the ’t Hooft

Deconfinement and CP breaking at θ=π in Yang-Mills theories and a novel phase for SU(2)

We discuss the deconfinement and the CP-breaking phase transitions at $\theta=\pi$ in Yang-Mills theories. The 't Hooft anomaly matching prohibits the confined phase with CP symmetry and requires

An 't Hooft anomaly is the obstruction for gauging symmetries, and it constrains possible low-energy behaviors of quantum field theories by excluding trivial infrared theories. Global inconsistency
